Five Tips For Your Stay At Siam Bayview Hotel

 

Siam Bayview Hotel, a 9-story, 260-room hotel located in the heart of Pattaya, is a perfect hotel choice for budget travelers, and those looking for an escape from Pattaya’s high-energy streets. Siam Bayview is an older hotel that shows is age in many ways, but the service is top-notch, the rooms are well-kept, the views are impressive, and the location is impeccable.

Centrally located in downtown Pattaya, right off of Beach Road, across the street from Central Festival Mall, and just a 10 minute walk from Walking Street, the real sale of Siam Bayview is its proximity to Pattaya’s top attractions. Oh yeah, and it’s just 100 yards away from Jomtien Beach. Here are a few tips to optimize your stay at Siam Bayview Hotel.

Goodbuy’s Five Quick Tips

1) Book a Seaview Deluxe Room (or ask for an upgrade): The hotel offers room with a “city view” and a “sea view,” and the city view rooms offer a slightly cheaper price tag. The Seaview Deluxe Rooms are more spacious, and are a great value for their slightly higher price tag.

2) Allot extra time for the elevators: The hotel’s elevators are small and extremely slow. Oddly, each of the hotel’s two elevators can only carry four guests. During peak times, a trip up or down the elevator can take up to 10 minutes.

3) Use The Tower Pool: If you’re visiting offseason, you may not have any issues with pool availability, but during peak season it’s always wise to check the Tower pool before plopping down at the Garden pool. The Tower pool typically hosts less families and children, and there are always plenty of available lounge chairs for the taking.

4) Have breakfast at the Garden Terrace: The breakfast buffet spread at Garden Terrace, a 24-hour restaurant on the hotel property, is lavish, and well worth a visit. Many bookings come with a free breakfast.

5) Hit the bar for a free WiFi connection: Siam Bayview Hotel charges 325 baht for one-day use of their WiFi connection. Stop by Exotica Bar or Fontainebleau Lounge for free Wi-Fi and your favorite drink.
